The hype of Elections on Social Media
There’s a lot of social media hype on elections these days. One of the most dangerous aspects of social media in a political campaign is the creation of fake news and facts about the political leaders which results in a devastating effect on public opinion. Nowadays many people are sharing their views about political leaders on social media and are supporting their favourite ones but at this point, we can only pray and wish for fair and transparent elections so that the democratic system can flourish in Pakistan.
